Thyroglobulin-Ab (TG-Ab) ELISA Kit

  • Created on the 2 February, 2017.

BACKGROUND

Thyroglobulin (hTG) is a water soluble glycoprotein which shares two identical subunits of 660,000 Daltons in molecular weight. The synthesis of T3 and T4 thyroid hormones is the result of oxidation iodination of tyrosine residues from the thyroglobulin molecule, this is in association with thyroid peroxidase (TPO). Small amounts of hTG are liberated into circulation together with T3 and T4, thyroglobulin is found to be transported within the cells by microsomes. There are a number of different symptoms for thyroid diseases such as: thyroid pain, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and goitre. These are all caused by the occurrence of organ specific antibodies or by immunogenic processes. Graves’ Diseases is a form an immunogenic hyperthyroidism where quite often additional antibodies occur. These are directed against eye muscle antigens and known to cause the endocrine opthalmopathy. This underlines the clinical relevance in determining the levels of these autoantibodies in the assessment of thyroid diseases.

INTENDED USE

Thyroglobulin-Ab ELISA kit is a reliable quantitative procedure for measuring thyroglobulin-Ab (TG-Ab) in human serum and plasma samples. This assay has a lowest detection limit of 10 IU/ml.

SENSITIVITY

The minimum detectable sensitivity limit of thyroglobulin-Ab (TG-Ab) using this thyroglobulin-Ab ELISA kit was approximately 10 IU/ml. The assay range for this kit is between 100 – 9,000 IU/ml.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA kit performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA kits from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
